About Fitzroy Falls
The picturesque village of Fitzroy Falls located in the heart of the Southern Highlands is surrounded by natural waterfalls, thick eucalyptus forests and vast national parks. Just a two hour drive from Sydney, Fitzroy Falls offers an ideal escape for anyone looking for bushwalking, bird watching, and country cafe hopping.
The jewel of the Fitzroy Falls guidebook is the 81m waterfall from which the town takes its name. The cascade is one of many natural falls within Morton National Park and can be viewed by following the boardwalk that runs alongside the creek. At the top of the walk is a lookout affording spectacular views of the falls and catchment 100m below.
Nearby Belmore Falls is equally impressive and is easily accessible from the town centre. In 1882, 4,000 acres of parkland were set aside as a reserve, forming the basis of the vast national park that exists today. A pleasant walk winds through the wilderness and offers magnificent views of Kangaroo Valley. Visitors may also encounter native flora and fauna along the way, including banksia, wattle, eagles, possums and even dingoes.
Fitzroy Falls is a small village, with only several dozen homes surrounded by farmland, however neighbouring regions of Kangaroo Valley, Bowral and Burradoo boast several accommodation options to suit a range of budgets. There are camping and caravan facilities, charming bed and breakfasts, hotels, motels, and self-contained cottages for families.
